I've seen a lot of reviews where people are complaining about "the pool not working.... or the snorkel access is blocked".
Listen, if you are going to the Virgin Islands to swim in a pool, stay home dummy. We booked through Expedia and it clearly stated that construction was happening, but that Gallows was offering discounts for that small inconvenience. I wouldn't have cared either way, as we do not go to an ocean destination to swim in a pool.
As for the snorkel access; There was plenty of room to simply walk right into the ocean, which my wife and I did 2-3 times per day for over a week.
Bottom line, this place is incredible. The grounds are immaculate, rooms are spacious and beautiful, and the views are THE best you could want. The staff was polite and always willing to assist. We would stay here again in a second!
The restaurant upstairs (Ocean 362) was very nice and again, the view alone made it worthwhile. I would've been happy with a hotdog and fries to sit there... let alone gourmet cuisine.
The snorkeling is amazing as well. To be honest, I would put the reef at Gallows in my top 3 for St. John. I would post photos, but I still haven't transferred the 400-500 we took... so take my word on it!
Cruz Bay is a 2 minute walk, which is great considering the restaurants and local stores it has to offer.
Thank you to Gallows Point for having us, and know that you have returning customers as soon as we can blow off work again!
